The name of the shop is Stitch Therapy and this Mystery Blanket Stitch-along is where the name of the shop comes from. Seven years ago when I taught at another shop I would give my knitting circle students a stitch a week to knit. The idea behind this was to get knitters comfortable with reading stitch instructions and executing the stitch patterns in hopes that when they found a future project that intrigued them they would not be intimidated by the complexity of the stitch pattern or the detail to make the sweater or shawl etc.
Volumes will be released every four weeks
This is an opportunity for you to experiment with a variety of knitting stitches and textures. In the end the 16 individual squares will be combined to create a small blanket.

Josephine will add a fifth color to create a Garter Stitch border on each individual square by picking up three stitches to four rows around. Pick up your stitches then begin with a round of purls, alternating with a round of knit, place ring markers at each corner then increase one stitch outside each marker on the knit round -- work six rounds of Garter Stitch pattern then bind-off purlwise. Sew squares together to form Mystery Blanket and work an additional border using the same pick-up formula and miter the four edges of your Mystery Blanket.
Gauge 5 sts to 1 inches in the Stockinette Stitch.
